If you’ve been following 3 Peas on Instagram or Facebook you’ve probably noticed we’ve gone a bit to the dogs
This past summer, we lost our beloved dog of 13.5yrs. We’d had him since he was a 7wk old puppy, and he was truly part of our family. You know how some people have a dog who’s well, just a dog, and then some people have a dog who’s pretty much like a kid to them and a sibling to their human kids? Yeah we fall into that last one… After losing our sweet boy, I knew that I wanted to take some time before finding our next dog, and what better way than to volunteer to be fosters for a local rescue. It was an interesting experience, that was super rewarding, and it surprisingly did not take us long to find our next forever dog. We were foster failures who ended up keeping Blue when he came to us from Kentucky in December. He’s amazingly sweet, loyal and quirky. Perfect for us. He’s often featured on our Instagram feed- so be sure to follow us!
ANYHOO- since we didn’t last long in the fostering arena, and want to take some time to get Blue settled before we consider fostering again, I wanted to find another way to continue to help Secondhand Hounds as I really found them to be quite an amazing organization. So enter in the obvious way- photographs of some of the sweet dogs they have available for adoption! So in the past month 8 different pups have come into the studio for updated photos for their adoption profile. Two have been adopted- but these six are still available!
Introducing (from left to right) Georgie, SweetPea, PattyCakes, Rotini, Ho-Ho, and Java. I really had a blast taking their photos and can only hope that I managed to capture their cuteness and sweetness, so that soon they too can find their forever homes!

If you’ve ever considered fostering and have any questions- I’m happy to answer them! It was really a great way for us to help out, AND find the next dog for our family. Since we have children, we really needed to know that the dog would get along well in our crazy house, so it was sort of a “try before you buy” method. It WAS hard saying goodbye to foster dogs who weren’t right for us, but helping them find their forever homes was so rewarding.
